Can you suggest a good operator for a trip to see the Whale Sharks?

Definitely an adventure of a lifetime, not to be missed!

Go, and enjoy. Isla Mujeres has a completely different vibe than Coz, but it's a fun place to spend a few days. And the whale shark excursion is simply something you'll never forget.

We now have ten for our whale shark trip. Still looking for an operator. I have been away on a trip and just checked here. We are leaving for Isla Mujeres next week.

If you are going to do this, and I do think it is worthwhile, I would NOT recommend doing it from Cozumel. Make Plans to spend a couple nights on Isla Mujeres or Isla Holbox. AND don't go expecting that it's going to be a simple snorkel float like you are used to in Chankanaab Lagoon - be prepared for a real workout.

glad you had fun and thanks for the review for those who have not done it.

any information on who to meet & where to book a whale shark trip from Cozumel using a puddle jumper would be great. I love the idea but thought it might be cost prohibitive. Do we just show up at Especias & talk to Adrian ? Approx how much per person does it cost ? It is clearly worth more than the ferry to a shuttle bus but how much more it does cost may be an issue for us

Included is a light ceviche lunch and beer and water on the boat. We also were dropped off to snorkel over some nice coral heads. We then rented a golf cart and toured Isla, including a drive-through convenience store where we bought cold beer and snacks. You need a driver's license to rent a cart, anyone can drive. We got back on the plane around 3:30, and went to dinner later.
I am sorry, I can't recall either tour's name. Our friend booked through an online site, and Adrian had "people". Check online for Isla Mujueres Whale Shark Tours Cozumel, or stop in at Especia's. You might try calling the little airport.
Either place, make sure you bring bug spray. Both times, it was well worth the price. You do have to be a good strong swimmer to keep up.
Adrian posted the video he took with my camera on You Tube. Awesome stuff, the shark opened his huge mouth to feed. DH had to swim like a fiend to keep up.

Well worth the price for the lifetime memories!
BTW, it costs my mom $400 to fly 45 minutes for a RT to a nearby big city in the US. No food, no beer, and certainly no Whale Sharks!

Had a great time on the boat and swam with the whale sharks and giant mantas.
Then a nice late lunch in Holbox, best lobster pizza I ever ate, then back on the plane and straight to Cozumel which took about 45 minutes...Because we knew the pilot and the family the costs were less but well worth it.
